Unigestion has hired two investment managers for its cross-asset solutions team. Salman Baig and Joshua Seager will work with all the cross-asset portfolios.
Baig joined from Bridgewater Associates, where he worked as an investment associate and engineer focusing on macroeconomic research, portfolio construction and risk management.
Seager previously worked at EQ Investors as an investment analyst. In his new role he will work on Unigestion’s cross-asset offering with a focus on the Alternative Risk Premia strategy.
Head of cross asset solutions, Jerome Teiletche, said: ‘As we move further away from a global economy fuelled by quantitative easing, genuinely diversified and actively risk-managed cross-asset investment strategies will have an increasing importance in an investor’s portfolio.
‘It is against this backdrop that we have looked to grow and bolster our team to ensure that we can continue to deliver and cater for the increasing demand for our investment solutions from clients globally.’
